“Julio Larraz: Painting in Time and Space”
Carol Damian, Ph.D.
Friday 10 February, 5pm to 6:30pm
Julio Larraz, extraordinary draftsman, painter and sculptor, is the quintessential embodiment of the post-World War II Latin American artist. Unmasking the angst of humanity, he sets out a new reality and politically conscious self-identity for existence in the modern world. His contribution to Western art, like that of the “boom” generation of Latin American writers, is a new kind of portraiture, which co-opts the conventions of the genre and transforms them into multilevel sociological and historical allegories.
